Springfield residents, Mark and Patty Bott are hosting a huge event Sunday, Dec. 8th at Boondocks in Springfield, IL.  Mark and Patty have been long-time supporters of the Springfield APL.  Their family dog “Korbel” just passed away and they wanted to have a special event in her name and raise some money for the APL… thus…the First Annual Korbel-A-Thon.

The Korbel-A-Thon will feature a massive balloon release and pet dedication.

The event will also feature 3 live local bands. Last Chance Band, The House Band and Mark’s own Band, Big Guy and the Mob.

Chadito’s is bringing out the food and it is only $5.00 at the door.

A huge silent auction is planned with great gifts from local businesses and people. They still need silent auction items. You can call 217-691-0740 to donate.

Don’t miss this great event. All proceeds will benefit the Springfield APL
